Friday May 20th

Martha Millender provided the donuts and made the coffee!

I made a sign-up sheet for Memorial Day dinner, and Ken B. will be chicken and we will all bring a side dish to share.

There's no new cards up to sign.

The Lingles have been back for a few days, someone pulled the breaker on the pole and the electric was off, they had food in their fridg. They decided to buy a new one when they get down this fall

Our photo albums are being put together, I proofed it and sent it back. I can't believe with all the cell nos. home phone nos. etc. that there were not any mistakes that I could find. Just a few different address to add.

Someone put a note on the board "private Pool Party" Tuesday, lol No one notified the Mgrs, about it and Bob said that it's not going to happen. No private pool parties.We just can't figure out who it could be. Update....pool party allowed

Our Asst. Mgr. left on the spur of the moment the other day...Diane is still here and just returned from Mobile Home selling School, and to get her license to sell them.For now she will still work in the office as Asst. mgr. and Ken Barnhart will fill in. Our owner on a Cruise so waiting to get approval.

A note from Charlotte Therrien:
Hector saw his doctor today and he will need radiation treatment, cause little bit cancer spread in the lymph nods
Please keep prayers going. Love you all, Char

May 6th

Today Bobby and I furnished the donuts.there were about 22 or so there.

Bobby is recooperating from Prostate surgery.Doing good!
Sharon Bussinger is improving after a couple strokes, as I understand. Her Mother,Margaret Davis tripped and hurt her hip some. The Eshelman's are still in the Nursing Home, Janell said just a few doors apart.Charlotte Therrien wrote and said Hector is home and is doing good!

All the carpets are being cleaned this week. The one in the card room is done and Mgr. Bob and I had to put enough tables and chairs back for donuts this morning. Then the guys came and put in the rest of the tables. Looks like most of the stains came out. It was bad!!

Did you all know the gas pumps and gas tanks were all removed from our WalMart? They are just about finished putting in all new pumps and tanks and it looks real nice. I noticed the gas prices near us have sure gone up, $1.94 to $1.96.Diesel is a little more than the price of gas.

The Farley's leave this weekend for their new home in Denver. The Hickey's across from us just left yesterday. There's not many "Winter Texans" here now. Clarence and Diane behind us will be leaving soon and her Mother Doris will leave the first of June.Martha Millender will leave in June also.

We could use a nice rain, but so far everything is nice and green.

Not much to report for now...if anything newsworthy comes up will let you all know!
